Hi I am building a website based on wordpress, say www.mywebsite.com
Now I also want to add a members area to it, www.mywebsite.com/members
This area will have a number of pages and also a forum integrated. To access this area users would be required to type in a username and password, which would be the same for everyone (no need to assign each user with a username and password).
What is the best solution for this? My first thought went to using two separate WordPress installations, and password protecting the /members directory containing the second "members-only" WP installation. I would like to know if there is a more efficient solution which would not require two separate WP installations, one possibility might be using WP MU (which I have never used).
Anyone can help in giving some alternatives? Thanks!
